Commercial Roofing — Regulatory Reform and Lower Taxes

Posted on Thursday, 21st May 2015

Roofers are Protected by the National Roofing Contractors Association

The field of commercial roofing often attracts brave entrepreneurs with impeccable work ethic and a desire to create something unique and personal. The field also attracts hardworking, small business supporters, not well versed in political intrigue, legal regulations, and the tax patterns of the industry. Thankfully, roofers are protected by their guardian, the National Roofing Contractors Association, which aims to represent the interest of roofers everywhere.

Regulatory Reform

Recently, the NRCA has made a call to reform, “We want to support candidates who are pro-business. The amount of regulation that has crept into our industry is daunting. A massive amount of nickel and dime red tape is tied up in all of it,” says Dale Tyler, president of the association.

Indeed, a call for less stringent and onerous regulation is on its way to congress. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, has yet to bring the bill to the floor, but it is thought that it will gain bipartisan support. At Gryphon Roofing, we encourage all supporters of small businesses to endorse the bill or any other movement in the future to remove some of the regulations holding roofing companies back from reaching their full potential. It has become increasingly difficult to succeed as business owners. Our country has a long tradition of supporting small business and encouraging entrepreneurs to strive for their goals. We hope the spirt of the tradition remains alive.

Taxation Reform

Roofers tend to be very busy—overseeing jobs, balancing books, and basically performing the grueling juggling act of owning a small business. The NRCA is pushing for a simplified tax code, one that supports small business and protects individual rights. Most members of the NRCA are registered as C-corporations or Limited Liability Companies. The new bill is predicted to push for lower rates across the board with the hope of jolting an electric shock into the world of small business economy.
